S2E13 “Checkmate”

Twin Peaks Episode 20 says goodbye to Jean Renault with a stupendous monologue your host John explores for thematic and lore implications. Also, what changes did Lynch want director Todd Holland to make to the episode, and why? How do we parse all the sexuality used as a weapon this episode? What is Windom Earle’s relationship to electricity, and what does Major Briggs tell us about the lore of the White Lodge? The middle of Season 2 continues to have more richness than its reputation implies.
